Andy Cohen tries to move on with his life after Oprah.

on May 26, 20110

OK, so there's no more Oprah at 4 p.m. today, or any day. Channel 7 is begging me and everyone else to "say hello" to their 4 p.m. news but, I mean, I just can NOT. Lee Goldberg's accu-weather ain't Oprah! Nothing is Oprah!

I thought the finale was as perfect as could be! Just Oprah doing a monologue felt better to me than five years of Sunday services. I thought it was elegant and truthful and cut to the heart of what she is about, and what her mission for her show has always been. It was the right way to end it. 

Last night I dried my tears and joined Sarah Jessica Parker and Sean Avery and the mayor at the Bloomberg Foundation for a benefit supporting marriage equality. It was lovely and powerful, and always an honor to speak with the mayor. This morning I realized I forgot to ask him about his new smoking bans, which I think are really crappy. You should be able to smoke in a park in NYC. That's what parks in NYC are for, right???  It's New York Freaking City -- can we not forget this?!

Tonight is going to be somewhat epic. The New York Housewives three-week trip to Morocco begins and it is a doozy!!! I will be live at 11 celebrating that and Fleet Week with Ramona and MSNBC's Willie Geist. See you then!

Andy, I love you so much and enjoy your show more than any of the actual shows. However, I must disagree with the previous poster. I don't think you were rude to Ramona at all. These ladies come on to your show to answer questions and I think you are way too nice to them. You have the opportunity to ask all of the questions we the viewers would love to ask but you let them get away without actually answering them. I found Ramona embarrassingly rude on last night’s episode and did something that I have not done in all of the seasons of the NY show, I changed the channel. I was mortified at her behavior and was actually sick to my stomach. When you asked her about it, all she does when it is pointed out to her is blame everyone else and say she was there to have fun. Fun is great! That is what it is all about but to be so low and rude at the expense of others is deplorable and she needed to be called out on it. Anyway, I will still watch you but to be honest, I think my NY lady days are over. Have a great weekend! :)

Andy,

I love watching you (and secretly wish you swam in the 'lady pond') but feel like you were quite rude to Ramona last night. Maybe you were venting some of your anger/sadness over the ending of the Oprah show?

Looking forward to next Thursday and hoping that you have a lovely Memorial Day Weekend.

Andy, with most of the housewives getting divorced, do you think the title of the show will change to EXhousewives of OC or NY? Also did Theresa Guidice say she filed a separation from her brother Joe? What exactly does that mean?

Andy, I just adore you. You do realize every gay man in America wants you for his husband, right? haha!! And every woman, too. Seriously, thanks for being such a fantastic presence on television. It's not easy to find images of gay men on television I can honestly admire and respect and even want to emulate. I can't help but admire how much you've accomplished at Bravo and how you always carry yourself with such grace and wit and Clooneyesque charm. And why aren't there more guys like you in Texas? ha! Congrats on everything and I look forward to watching Bravo this summer and beyond.

All the best from Houston! And I want a fleet week in HTown!!! I pay my taxes too!! ha!
